Dave White Presents

Do the “Time Warp” when Marley’s Ghost and the ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW headline the next “Dave White Presents”!

For 25 years, Marley’s Ghost has been a roots band playing bagpipes, blues, reggae, country and folk. Their 10th album, JUBILEE, has just been released, and celebration is the right word! For one thing, JUBILEE was produced by 81 year old Cowboy Jack Clement. He worked with Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Roy Orbison and Carl Perkins back at Sun Records. In fact Clemen was the guy who told Jerry Lee Lewis to come back with something rock ‘n roll. So credit Clement with inspiring “Great Balls of Fire.”

On Tuesday June 5, singer and multi-instrumentalist Dan Wheatman will tell you other stories about JUBILEE including the other heavy-hitters who joined in the fun including Emmylou Harris, John Prine, Old Crow Medicine Show, and Marty Stuart. Wheatman will get inside the two clever songs we’ll play for you including one co-written by Levon Helm about a cotton farmer who, ah, had to plant an alternate crop. “Hank and Audrey” is all about the wild relationship between Hank and Audrey Williams. Wild is the right word, alright . . .

Speaking of wild, why is THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW such a phenomena? Forty years after its debut, it’s still the longest running movie being shown in theatres, usually at those famous midnight matinees. Why does it inspire grown men to dress up in fish-net stockings and prompt viewers to throw food at the screen?

Dave Thompson, author of a new ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW history, has some ideas about the whys of RHPS along with many stories behind the production. Did you know it all started when Richard O’Brien wrote the play because he wasn’t permitted to play Herod as Elvis in a production of Jesus Christ Superstar? Did you know there have been 118 “Original Cast” soundtrack recordings from countries as diverse as Peru, Iceland, the Philippines, Panama, and Germany? Thompson covers it all, including the “The Rocky Horror Picture Show Audience Participation Survival Kit” which lists everything you must bring to any screening.

On top of all that, Dave White chats with a new KSAV host named Mark Silverman. His upcoming show is called “Talking Time Share.” What is it all about? Find out Tuesday, June 5 at 7:30 p.m. Eastern, then 7:30 Pacific over–
